Dental Bridges

What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are artificial replacements of missing teeth. They contain three or more units that fill the gap left by a missing tooth. Dental bridges are fixed restorations that contain crowns (also called abutments) that take support from adjacent teeth and the artificial teeth (called pontic) to replace the missing teeth. Since dental bridges are fixed, they cannot be easily removed at home. Dental bridges are extremely routine procedures that are performed by our team at Rutudent-Bhawsar Dental Care & Research Centre clinics. Let’s understand more about them.

What to expect from dentist?

Dental bridge treatment is a common dental procedure used to replace one or more missing teeth by bridging the gap between adjacent teeth. Here's what you can typically expect from the dental bridge treatment process:
• Initial Consultation: Your dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and gums to determine if you're a suitable candidate for a dental bridge. They'll discuss your treatment options and address any concerns you may have.
• Preparation: During the first appointment, the adjacent teeth (abutment teeth) on either side of the gap will be prepared by removing a portion of their enamel to make room for the dental bridge. If the adjacent teeth are already compromised, additional dental work may be necessary to strengthen them.
• Impressions: After the preparation, impressions or molds of your teeth are taken. These impressions are used to create a custom-made dental bridge that fits perfectly in your mouth.
•Temporary Bridge: While the permanent bridge is being fabricated, your dentist may place a temporary bridge to protect the exposed teeth and gums.
• Bridge Placement: Once the permanent bridge is ready, you'll return to the dentist for the final fitting. The bridge will be carefully placed and adjusted to ensure a proper fit and bite.
• Adjustments: Your dentist may make some adjustments to the bridge to ensure it feels comfortable and functions properly. It's essential to communicate any discomfort or concerns you may have during this stage.
• Care and Maintenance: Your dentist will provide instructions on how to care for your dental bridge properly. This includes regular brushing and flossing, as well as scheduling routine dental check-ups to ensure the bridge remains in good condition.
